Wondering whether or not it is time to replace your siding? Look, we know that…
Siding may be the piece of your house doing the most work for that all-exalted curb appeal. It ties in the whole aesthetic of the house together, and good siding can even raise your home’s value with minimal investment. But siding is so much more than that, and there are plenty of signs that indicate when it’s time for siding replacement.
Higher Energy Bills
If your energy bills have suddenly spiked, while there may be a couple of reasons why, your siding could be the source of the issue. If you find a draft near the exterior walls or windows, it may mean there’s an issue with the siding which means it is time for a replacement. This is perfect because great siding should be energy-efficient, maintenance-free, and visually appealing all at once.
Paint Peeling Inside
Paint peeling inside your house is a cause of concern, and definitely a cause to fix the issue leading to this. If paint is peeling it means that there’s moisture sneaking into your home and that your siding needs to be replaced.
Noticeable Storm Damage
Similar to paint peeling inside, noticeable storm damage means it’s time for siding replacement. Extreme cold or extreme heat along with harsh winds or precipitation entering your home through the exterior walls and windows are signs of noticeable storm damage.
Water and moisture cause blisters and bubbles to appear on your siding, similar to how they can affect your interior paint. It’s best to address issues like this as soon as you notice them or else they can get much worse.
Cracking or Warping
Any cracking or warping is typically a cause of concern. It’s also usually the easiest kind of damage to spot. If you find any siding rotting, cracking, warping, or otherwise physically changing in an unusual way, it’s likely time to replace your siding.
Faded or Irregular Painting
Faded siding washes the color of your home out a lot. And you might repaint it only to fade again soon. So you repaint it again to have the same issue. This is a clear sign of needing a siding replacement, as siding color should last around 8-10 years before needing a repaint.
Mold and Fungal Growth
Lastly, and probably the worst, is mold and fungal growth. Damages to your siding can cause these infections to get into your house’s siding and spread and damage your siding. It’s also a danger to your health, so it’s important to replace your siding ASAP.
